Renovation project - How to make a cottage kitchen
The bad day is over and done with, it is a new morning and the sun is shining. It’s time to start a fresh.
The next job now that the floors are all laid is to make a little kitchen corner for the little house. John will be making this from scratch.
He got the waste and taps fitted yesterday so everything is ready.
The plug sockets are installed, and the wood laid out for the cupboards. He is going to make one large cupboard; we have the size ready, which is actually the piece of left over work top. This is perfect as it goes from the corner in the room and finishes with just enough space to fit the fridge, we could not have got a more perfect size had we measured it.
The cupboard is put together and slotted in place, the work top is added and John cuts out the hole for the sink.
Luckily this all goes smoothly. The doors are made from floorboards, but there are an odd number, this means 2 doors will be 4 boards wide and one door will be 3 boards wide. We try to decide the best way of using them, but each way looks a bit odd.
I leave John to it and continue with cleaning the new tile floor.
When I go in with a brew, he has it sussed. There will only be 2 doors. A board has been added to each side and one will be attached in the middle. This looks perfect and with our antique looking door handles the little kitchen is complete.
